Broga Hill, A Beginner Trail

Broga Hill is located in Selangor, Malaysia and has an altitude of 400 meters. It is mainly covered with lalang grass and palm trees.

For people who are into hiking, it is a beginner trail although it is quite challenging reaching the first peak as it is a bit steep. But fear not for there are ropes that you can hold on to. Depending on how fit you are, it can take about 30 to 45 minutes to reach the highest peak. The more photo stops you take, the longer it takes to reach, obviously. There are 3 peaks and they offer different views.

We were supposed to catch the sunrise, but unfortunately we arrived late. Nonetheless, the climb was still worth it for we had a breathtaking view as we reached the top. It was so refreshing because the view is almost all green. From the top, you get a panoramic view of the landscape, the plains, the nearby towns and the plantations. The hike may be short but is very rewarding.

I just love the feel of early mornings

And the sun is up and shining

And the photo ops begin...

Start them young. I heard them say a few times during the hike

Start them young. I heard this boy said “I can do it” a few times during the hike, every time his parents tried to hold his hands.

That ends the hike. And what better way to relax after a hike? Well, nothing beats a foot massage.
